Default Antoine Wright: Burning Down the Doghouse!

After mid-December, Sonny Weems began to get Wright’s minutes in the rotation and Sonny provided athleticism and excitement that is not part of Wright’s game.

Fortunately for Wright, Jay Triano must have seen what Wright could bring to the team. Or maybe it was just Weems couldn’t keep up that exceptionally hot shooting he brought to his first few games in the rotation. But, by the end of December, Wright was getting his chance again.

Wright has discovered that shooting less equals more floor time for him, as he has averaged less than four shots per game. And shooting less has helped boost his hit rate to a respectable 44.9 percent from the field. Wright is no longer a liability on offense.
Antoine Wright: Out of the Raptors Doghouse

Antoine Wright has played the best ball of his career in January.

Recently labeled as the most likely Raptor to be traded. Wright suddenly has become an important guy off the Raptors bench.

Not counting players on rookie contracts - Is there anyone in the NBA earning less than $2m who the Raps could have who's any better?
